morepix: Kodak branding seems like a poor choice from a marketing POV. It's something like Ford introducing a new model line named Edsel.

I'm not so sure. The dead Voigtlander brand worked well for Cosina when they reintroduced it...

On Lightroom Photo Import article (117 comments in total)

" One thing worth noting is that if you have an external drive(s) where you store your pictures - and you plug/ unplug the drive from the computer the drive letter may change"

Always give the removable drive an explicit drive letter (Administrative Tools/Computer Management->Disk Management). This will never change and will be used every time the disk is plugged in. Use a letter well down the alphabet so that it won't be "hijacked" by plugging in some other device while this one is absent.

Judging by the photographs the quality of materials and finish is disappointing for an expensive adapter like this, it reminds me of the Sonia programmable optical flash trigger I currently use with my NEX, best described as "agricultural" - functional, quite tough but very, very crudely finished.

I'm sure there will be one which was taken before his!

On Fujifilm produces limited edition of 10,000 black X100s article (101 comments in total)

Fuji seems to be following Leica's marketing tactics, which given where that has taken Leica this doesn't seem to be a smart move. Time will tell.

Personally I prefer the aesthetics of the original (I have one) but in any case I certainly wouldn't pay a premium for a "limited" edition whatever the colour - it's just a camera for goodness sake.

Hmm. It appears to be unable to open Fuji X100 .RAF files :-(

In any case it's not going to attract LR users (like me) so long as it has no DNG support.

On Adobe faces criticism for change of upgrade policy article (398 comments in total)
In reply to:

Brek01: Speaking for myself, I am happy with CS3, it does all I need it to do, so I am not upgrading to any new version anytime soon, which means no revenue for adobe, so I guess I see why they are doing it.

"And Lightroom won't work with latest cameras, even up-to-date LR, if your ACR is not the latest."

Nonsense. I use a current LR with current cameras but have never upgraded PS from CS2. There is absolutely no requirement to upgrade PS/ACR unless you need to open the raw files directly in PS rather than LR.

Tvaclavek: What about the nex-5n?

That's already supported in 3.5.
